Outdoor Furniture, Part 2

What does this photo have to do with furniture? This is the introduction photo of the first post I wrote on my outdoor furniture. Well, that was to show the shower curtains, the wooden circles have more to do with this post. I call these ice cream chairs, they are much like bistro chairs except I thought the side mounts made them much like the little seats that dawned every soda fountain in the 50's. What do I know? I like them because they are wrought iron and cute!~

My husband and I had a slight misunderstanding, he assumed when he said "he'd like them painted green", that I understood ALL the outdoor furniture was going to be ballpark green. That included the redwood set and the wicker set. O.K......, no. But these can be green and I won't protest to much....and hey, those white plastic chairs? They would look great green!


On went the foam and fabric, abracadabra.....cute little seats. At first we thought these would go on the small balcony outside my bedroom but I think they'd look wonderful out here on the deck.


Even the backs are covered with the same fabric.


Sweet, huh? And so simple, it's a good thing. C&G Design

look at what a major difference that those chairs have now. People do not think about how beautiful something can be and throw it away. I am glad you were able to save these.
